Don't want to be a stinker or anything, and I'm as guilty as any at times but, it sure would be helpful to me and I would guess others if we could stick with hunt pics and stories and hold the comments and congrats to PMs or some other mechanism.  I love to see this thread topped only to find a lot of "attaboys".  Thanks.
Take a kid hunting!

John aren't "attaboys" better than "TTT"?

Kyle,   If you need some, I can bring you some pretty arrows to the Texas Sweat Hunt.
Just let me know, I am here for you pal.

SuperKodiak, from what I understand they are always in need of good law enforcement officers up here.  We would love to have you.

JC and Charlie,  Dont threaten me JC, actions speak louder than words, get your butt up here.  You guys know you have an open invitation to my place anytime day or night.  If you want to do any hunting up here,  feel free to stay at our place, as long as you want or use it as a staging base to go out and come back on any hunt you want.

Charlie, As I remember right, my uncle dressed you funny to for a while...

Come on guys, I know that season is open, post those pics.

Great Pictures, Jumper! Thanks for posting. They are great!
Someday you and I will take the Great Hart by our own skill alone, and with an arrow. And then the Little Gods of the Woods will chuckle and rub their hands and say, "Look, Brothers. An Archer! The Old Times are not altogether gone!"

Jumper I appreciate the offer and tho I'd never turn down a gift from a friend, I'm afraid that the way I tend to miss and/or bounce arras off of stuff, those aluminiminium metal things would just end up lookin like a coathanger for me an then I'd be all mad 'bout messin up a pretty thing like that!!!!

Those Adcock bows can smoke an arrow!
I just got a three arrow Mini Bowquiver from a TwoFletch, in Mebane, NC, this week. It's nice and suits my short afternoon hunts... and got this doe Friday, at 5:30...
double lung pass through with 45# and 30 in. 2018s.
I put a little reflective tape on my equipment...can you see it?
How 'bout the white moth that got it the picture...must be the 'White Death Moth', I've heard about...  :bigsmyl:

Truly magic, Mr. Harriss! Neat how the smoke from the arrow still hangs in the air! I had to save that pic to my files. Oh yeah, I put one of those on my Dakota at ATAR! Nice quiver!

And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.

Follwing are some photos of my Wyoming antelope hunt on the Smith Sheep ranch. It was my first antelope hunt .  What made the adventure even more memorable was sharing camp with fellow Trad gangers Scott Frost ( southpawshooter) and Dave Tice (Tique). The other people in camp thought we knew each other even though we just met in person.

I would like to keep the pictures and stories going.
I hunt a few WMA's ,here in Georgia, with my friend Chris Ward. We share many days of great southern adventure!

 
Here is Chris on the stalk for hogs. The pic. does not show it, but I could see his breath as he walked in sun spots.

 
The reward after a long hunt!

I just returned from a moose and caribou bowhunt in Newfoundland.  It was my first time there and on a floatplane.  Hurricane Ophilia followed my from NC to NF, arriving the same day as me but we were barely able to fly into camp on a saturday.  I enjoyed looking through the pile of shed antlers..

 

The 4 bowhunters in camp beat up the target, but didn't do so well on live animals...

 

The heavy rains and wind arrived on saturday night and became a daily factor, with only 1 day on sunshine and calm.  Still, I had a good chance at a nice bull moose on the first and second days.  I passed on a 80 yard shot (to my guide's dismay - he was a gun hunter and had never guided a trad bowhunter, and I explained that I much preferred 8 yard shots, not 80 yard shots) on monday and passed on a quartering to shot on the second day.  That stalk was ruined by the watchful cow moose.  The lone gun hunter killed this bull moose on the third day..

 

At least there were plenty of blueberries to eat, between the rain showers...

 

One day I spotted a nice bull woodland caribou and an hour later, was only 10 yards away from the elevated rock that he laid on, but when he rose and I picked my spot (an upward shot through his sternum), I got excited and forgot all about form.  The sickening sound of the string hitting my armguard was followed by a wobbly arrow behind the bull.  I couldn't believe that I had found another way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory...

Here is my consolation prize, a nice shed antler...

 

Overall, it was a great bowhunting experience on "The Rock" and I hope to return some day...

 

One bonus of the long drive was having breakfast with my buddy, tradganger David Kretchmar, while passing through NH.
